XV2Whilst the sun is shining we decided to play outside and put the wings, fin and tailerons back on our ex 15 Squadron Tornado GR1 restoration project. We’ve had this aircraft almost a year now and that’s how long its taken to find all the missing external parts!

The rest of the rebuild should now be fairly rapid. The seats are still to go in and the rest of the outside now needs to be panelled up. Nibs and flexi fairings are next on the to do list as well as Main U/C doors and leading edge slats. It’s starting to look more like a Tonka. Once complete, this aircraft will be for sale. Watch this space!
